Finally I felt like I could get out and try a run. I ran 5 miles today. I felt good. There was a little vertigo if I looked around too much, but overall I felt really good. Really good, but pretty slow.
I am okay with being slow at Barb's Race this weekend. I just hope I haven't lost too much endurance. I have trained very hard since March, harder than I have ever trained, but this month because of my trip to Africa and then the illness, I have only been able to train 6 days out of 29. I don't think that is what they had in mind when they talk about taper.
TOTALLY AWESOME NEWS BULLETIN

1. My super cool blogger buddy Willie!
